Four-Game Season for Falcons, Buccaneers

With a win over the San Diego Chargers, the Buccaneers are now 7-5, tied with the Falcons for first place in the NFC South.

The Falcons are 3-1 in the division, with two NFC South games remaining on their schedule. Atlanta travels to Carolina in Week 16, and finishes the regular season with a matchup against New Orleans at the Georgia Dome.

Tampa is 2-1, with three NFC South games left. The Buccaneers have yet to play the Saints this season.

Because the Falcons and Bucs have already split their season series, the NFL's divisional tie-breakers will come into play.

The first tie-breaker is division record. Right now,the Falcons own that tie breaker, as they are 3-1 against NFC South opponents. The next tie-breaker would be record against common opponents. Atlanta is 3-3 at the moment, while the Buccaneers are 4-4.
